My name is Rachel Maccini, I am the Pesticide Safety Education Program, Coordinator with UNH Extension. We have created and have received approval from our State Lead Agency (NH Department of Agriculture, Markets & Food, Division of Pesticide Control) for recertification credits on 11 online Pesticide Safety courses. The courses are focused on important pesticide related topics. The courses are available to all certified pesticide applicators throughout New England and have been approved by Pennsylvania’s State Lead Agency as well. Because New England has reciprocity with each NE state, if a state lead agency has approved an event, workshop, course and/or meeting it will be accepted in other NE states, we are hopeful you will offer these opportunities to your clientele. The courses are located on the eXtension website and can be accessed 24 hours a day. Each course is designed to be interactive, keeping the student engaged while involving them in the learning. The courses cost between $20-$40 per course (depending on the topic). Once the course is complete the student will take an assessment in which they will need to pass before a certificate of completion is awarded. If you need additional information and would like to discuss this in more depth please let me know.
